A St. Mary Parish Jail inmate has been charged with possession of contraband following an investigation into pictures that were posted on Facebook.
The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office began investigating inmate Alvin T. Louis after receiving complaints that he had posted to Facebook almost 100 times from July 16 - July 21, according to The Acadiana Advocate.
Pictures of Louis on Facebook show the inmate holding a cell phone in his jail cell. He also referenced other inmates who had been caught for using phones.
He was originally booked on charges of attempted second degree murder, two counts of second-degree battery, aggravated battery, possession of firearm by a convicted felon and parole violation.
